Three Things to Do Before the End of the Semester

It’s the final countdown! We’re less than a month away from the final day of exams. Before you head home for the summer, study abroad, or start a summer job or internship, take time to enjoy these three things before the semester comes to a close.

Cheer on the Vols this Saturday

OWgame2015It may not be football season yet, but you can still see the Vols in action this weekend during the Orange and White game. This annual tradition kicks off at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, April 16, in Neyland Stadium.

In 2014, 68,548 Vol fans attended, marking the second-largest crowd for a spring game in UT history. This year, the team wants 100,000 fans to show their Vol spirit! Grab your friends and make your way to the stadium to join the thousands of fans heading to campus for the day.

Visit Humes Hall One More Time

You probably know about the two residence halls opening for the fall semester on the former Shelbourne Towers site and three more scheduled to open at the former Apartment Residence Hall location.

What you might not know is Humes Hall is the next residence hall to close for the West End Residence Hall Redevelopment. If you lived in Humes Hall or have a fun memory from the building, stop by for one last look before the hall closes in August.

Celebrate the End of Classes

Two annual campus traditions are just around the corner. I Heart UT Week begins Monday, April 25, and runs through Friday, April 29. Celebrate the last week of class and have some fun before exams with activities, giveaways, food, and contests.
